Children are a true treasure. Children require a bit of creativity and are a pure joy. My approah is to build a quck therpeutic relationship, where I am able to enter their world quickly. I like to use a combination of talk and play therapy, including art, games, workbooks and stories. Having a holistic approach, I like to briefly work with parents where willing, as I recognize that the dynamic of home is a powerful force. Adolescent are a unique people group, as well. I am always delighted and surprised at how quickly and easily teens open up to me.

A play therpay approach is utilized that offers creative ways to engage childrfen in expressing issues that they may not be able to verbalize direarectly. Children and teens may need others means beyond talk to work throught issues.

Children are more sensitive than we realize. They are learning about themselves and the world in which they live every day. They, however, are most vulnerable to mixed messages and faulty assumptions. They need to be led and guided so they can learn to be productive, healthy, happy individuals. Throughout the years, using techniques, skill and personal experience to provide a safe and open environment, I've seen children of all ages blossom and grow.

We believe that parents are the most powerful force in a child's life. For children 12 and under, we request that parents only come to the first session to allow for the therapist and the parents to discuss the child's challenges and situation, and to establish goals. Further sessions will be a combination of the child playing with the therapist in strategic ways that allow the goals to be pursued. For teens 13-17, we as that parents accompany their adolescent to the first session and participate in it. Subsequent sessions will be mainly with the teen, but parents may be invited in at points.

Children express themselves in many ways, mostly in a nonverbal manner through play and art activities. As an art therapist, Donna helps children and their families to understand each other more fully. Using play therapy assists as well, because understanding the messages and patterns that children are attempting to express can assist parents and their caregivers in fully comprehending what is happening.
